Taunton School appoints new chief operating officer
Taunton School, a co-educational independent day and boarding schools in Somerset has appointed Sandra Reynolds as chief operating officer, replacing Nikki Miller who has held the position for seven years.
Reynolds is currently chief operating officer and chief financial officer for a large multi academy trust in Wiltshire and will take up her new post in May.
Reynolds, who originally trained as an accountant, will be moving to Somerset from Wiltshire with her husband and two daughters.
Reynolds said: “I am absolutely delighted to be taking up this role at an incredibly exciting time for the school as it continues to develop its facilities and educational offer so that current and future generations of students have access to the best opportunities. I am thrilled to be part of that journey, working alongside a fantastic team of colleagues.
“What really fascinates me about Taunton School is the strong community of governors and staff who are philanthropic, diverse and aspirational. They will not settle for anything but the best for young people and each other.”
Taunton School’s headmaster James Johnson said: “I am delighted that Sandra will be joining us next term. I have no doubt that her extensive experience, managing the finances and operations of multi academy trusts in the maintained sector, will be of great value to Taunton School as we complete our ambitious campus development plan and ensure that the school continues to thrive.”
Founded in 1847, Taunton is located on a 56-acre site which is home to five separate schools: a nursery, a pre-preparatory school, a prep school, senior school and an international school.
